I mixed smoothie with apples, grapes, berries, raspberries, romaine spinach, almonds, and flax seeds. Will this help my skin? & do I drink it 2 a day?

Maybe (not) . . .: I'm not aware of any randomized double blind placebo controlled trials demonstrating any benefit from a smoothie as described above in an adequate sized population of otherwise similar men & women. Nor am I aware of any dosing recommendations. However, I'm sure it's better than eating junk food! ...Read more

Good for you: Good start. Dinner: grilled chicken breast and tossed salad with olive oil and vinegar dressing. Some people would substitute tofu for the chicken. Losing weight may help your blood pressure as well. Be sure to start getting some exercise. ...Read more

What happens if I only drink a green tea smoothie consisting of green tea, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries how much weight will I lose?

That depends: On total caloric content of each drink and how many you have each day. Obviously calories burned would need to exceed calories consumed. This does not sound like a balanced diet - as it is all fruit sugars. Consider adding in vegetable & good sources of protein. ...Read more

Is my vegetable intake okay? I eat mostly green veggies(broccoli, mixed greens, green pepper, green beans, etc.). My fruit intake is quite colorful.

Is my vegetable intake okay? I eat mostly green veggies(broccoli, mixed greens, green pepper, green beans, etc.). My fruit intake is quite colorful.

Sounds good to me: I recommend people eat fruits & vegetables of all colors as the colors are made by different beneficial micronutrients. It's great that you're eating the veggies you do & that you're getting colorful fruits, so you're doing fine, but consider adding in some red/orange/yellow peppers, onions, carrots, tomatoes & purple cabbage. You might also consider seeing a good homeopath for your thought issues. ...Read more

Eat 5 banana, 1orange , 1 apple. 2cup green tea and 2 cup of nescafe(coffee). Is it healthy?

No: Where is your protein? This is mostly an all sugar albeit natural sugar diet. You need a more balanced diet with protien and whole grains. This is not a healthy breakfast or diet. And tea AND coffee? I'd stick with just the green tea myself. ...Read more
